That chickens cannot eat
Also, spring is a good time to check what kind of plants are growing around your yard to make sure you’re not exposing your feathered friends to anything dangerous. Here’s the list of toxic plants your chickens should avoid:
The leaves, stem and seeds of apricots are toxic and should not be added to a hen’s diet. Apricots are a fruit of the Rosaceae family. Apricots are closely related to plums and peaches.
To be honest, learning about this surprised me. I never imagined that beans would be on the list of plants toxic to chickens, but it turns out that raw beans are toxic because they contain hemagglutinin. This is a compound that is toxic to chickens.
That doesn’t mean you can’t grow beans; of course you can! But you should keep your chickens out of any garden that contains beans and never feed raw beans to your chickens. However, well-cooked beans can occasionally be added to your daily diet!
Chickens can eat raw rice
Fortunately, almost all poisonous plants have a taste and smell that birds dislike. Their survival instinct leads them to avoid these plants. However, we must be careful about planting certain species in the garden that are harmful to the health of your pets.
The daffodil flower has a yellow color that attracts the attention of chickens and they will probably approach it and test it with their beaks. But beware, daffodils are toxic to chickens, as are hydrangea, ferns, ivy, oleanders and hyacinth.
Chickens are omnivorous and it is a good idea to feed them our leftover food: vegetable peelings, rice, bread…. But not everything goes! They are not mammalian animals and therefore their digestive system is not prepared to ingest dairy products. Nor should they try raw meat, avocado or citrus fruits.

Chickens can eat cilantro
Many of the hazards or toxic products for birds are found among very common objects in our home. Knowing these hazards will help you provide a longer and healthier life for your pet.
Contact with hot surfaces such as boiling water or frying pans can cause severe burns to our pets. We must prevent animals from flying free while cooking; or take the precaution of covering or covering these surfaces.
Virtually any aerosol concentrated in large quantities in a confined space can be toxic if inhaled by our parrot. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), also called Teflon, is a chemical substance contained in frying pans and irons. When it is subjected to high temperatures (e.g. frying) it gives off an acidic fume that is highly toxic to birds.
Chocolate, tea, coffee and alcohol should not be kept within reach of animals. A parrot should also be prevented from ingesting or inhaling tobacco or tobacco products. Avocado is potentially toxic to birds, as well as onions can cause anemia. Raw potato and eggplant should also not be offered to our pets.

Bayer’s Solfac is the best insecticide for the Bariguí horsefly because as an insecticide it is highly recommended and the solvent works as a powerful repellent. Bariguí is difficult to combat but frequent spraying with Solfac can bring it to acceptable levels.
If the floor is solid and the flea cannot bury itself, fumigate with Quick Killer and then apply Bolatte fumigant pots. If the flea can be buried, flood with environmental Gleba Pulex once a week. It is important that after applying either treatment you cannot walk barefoot in the house.
